Updated NBA Championship Odds – March 7th Edition
And the answer is: Not much too interesting. The Golden State Warriors have been NBA title favorites since they won it all last season over the Cleveland Cavaliers, and the Dubs remain -230 favorites to win a third title in four years. Nothing is going to knock Golden State out of the favored role other than one of Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Draymond Green or Klay Thompson suffering a season-ending injury. And I’m not sure Green or Thompson doing so would even be enough. Durant or Curry would. I believe I speak for most NBA fans in hoping that the Houston Rockets, who are +280 on the title odds, do end up having the best record in the NBA because the lone shot that James Harden & Co. have is home-court advantage against the Warriors in the West Finals. Houston did win the season series 2-1 and thus would own a tiebreaker should the teams finish with the same record – which is quite possible.
